Wednesday, October 31st marked the first annual Maple Hill Halloween Costume Contest.
Students from all grades (and teachers!) dressed in costumes, participated in a fashion show, and three students were awarded prizes for their creative and fantastic costumes.
Students also learned some of the history of the North American Halloween traditions, and why we do the strange and wonderful things we do on this day every year.
Afterwards, everyone had a chance to participate in the beloved Halloween tradition of Trick-or-treating throughout Maple Hill School! We look forward to next year, and seeing what kinds of crazy, creepy and crafty costumes students and teachers will come up with!
The Metro Vancouver of the province of British Columbia provides the spectacular backdrop of snow-capped mountains and the beautiful waters of the Pacific Ocean. Maple Hill School is well situated for international students to enjoy these surroundings while focusing on their high school education. Maple Hill School provides curricular choices for Gr. 9, 10, 11, and 12, including in-school academic courses and applied skills as well as at out-of-school field trips and excursions. There is a strong focus on developing character, service in our community, and cultivating an international worldview. This holistic philosophy helps students to fulfill their dreams in the multicultural context of BC universities or at post-secondary institutions throughout the world.
